Sheehan Supports Deserters in Canada

Cindy Sheehan is in Canada encouraging AWOL troops in their desertion. Listen, I feel for anyone who has lost a child. I truly cannot imagine her pain; however, there is no excuse for her actions when it comes to the war and President Bush. These troops need the support of the American people, not someone telling them that everything they are fighting for is in vain. She has no respect for our troops and she definitely has none for our great country. I dont believe this woman will ever truly “get it”. Maybe she should think about going on the road with the Dixie Chicks - I hear they are going to Canada too.

A group of American military deserters publicly embraced their new lives in Canada on Saturday with the support of “peace mom” Cindy Sheehan, who said she wished the son she lost in Iraq was among them.

“I begged him not to go to Iraq,” the anti-war activist said through tears at a rally in support of the former soldiers, who wore black T- shirts emblazoned with “AWOL.” “And I wish he was standing up here with these people because he didn’t want to go.”

Sheehan was making her second visit to Canada in support of sanctuary for those fleeing the U.S. military. The Canadian government has so far denied political asylum to U.S. soldiers who have sought it but appeals are pending.

“They’re trying to deport me,” said Darrell Anderson of Lexington, Ky., who arrived in Canada by way of Niagara Falls in January 2005. He spent seven months in Iraq with the Army’s 1st Armored Division and received a purple heart following a roadside bomb attack before deciding during a leave he would not go back.
